SecureDrop User Research: Call for Participation

David Huerta and training participants

We want to make SecureDrop a better tool for journalists. To do so, we need your help.

Since 2013, Freedom of the Press Foundation has stewarded the development of SecureDrop, a free and open-source tool used by more than 60 news organizations to securely communicate with anonymous sources. We are now revisiting how journalists interact with SecureDrop, with the goal of improving the user experience for journalists and newsrooms.

Now more than ever the world depends upon your courageous journalism. To make SecureDrop the best tool it can be in service of your work, we need your guidance. We are inviting you to participate in 30-45 minute usability research sessions in your browser.

If you are open to participating, please complete the quick survey below. Thank you for reading, and thank you for your work! We would love to hear from you.
